The aurora borealis, or northern lights, is a spectacular natural light display. Researchers at the University of Iowa have now found that the most brilliant auroras are made by powerful electromagnetic waves during geomagnetic storms.

Aurora borealis: How northern lights are created has now been discovered - CBBC Newsround

For the first time astronomers have observed waves of magnetic energy, known as Alfvén waves, in the photosphere of the sun. This discovery may help explain why the solar corona is so much hotter than the surface. The sun is made of plasma, and like any plasma it should support Alfvén waves. These are waves … Continue reading "Astronomers Confirm the Existence of Magnetic Waves in the Sun’s Photosphere"
